Applicants with interests in academia’s research, teaching and administrative missions as well as physicians seeking additional training for purely clinical roles are encouraged to apply to the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship at Indiana University School of Medicine. The school and this program place high value on candidates interested in staying in Indiana after graduation.
Any general psychiatry resident training in a U.S., ACGME- accredited program, expecting to graduate in good standing and to become ABPN board eligible in general psychiatry, may apply to the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship program. The program also welcomes (and have trained) psychiatrists who are several years out from residency training (and already boarded in General Psychiatry) who recognize the need for the additional training and certification in Addiction Psychiatry for their careers and their patients. General Psychiatry Residents (and/ or those who have done any other type of psychiatry fellowship training) can begin the inquiry and application process at any point in their PGY-3 year or later.
The application-interview-decision-acceptance process happens outside “the match” and year-round. Applicants can start the process at any time by emailing Linda Dye, Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Coordinator at IU School of Medicine. Candidates may formally apply to the program with submission of their current curriculum vitae and a completed Universal Application.
Fellowship training typically begins in July, but off-cycle start dates are also possible depending on circumstances. Once a fellow begins training, (s)he must proceed on either a 0.5 FTE (half time) basis for two years or 1.0 FTE (full time) pace for one year.
Half-time fellows may pursue any professional activity to supplement income, training or personal/professional pursuits that are not in conflict with and do not involve their training sites. Similarly, full time fellows may moonlight outside of their normal training hours. There is no over-night or weekend call responsibilities related to the Addiction Psychiatry Program at IU School of Medicine.
